Criminal Background Check and Drug Screening
Clinical facilities require that all Nurse Aide II students submit a criminal background check and urine drug screening. Wake Technical Community College and the clinical facilities have designated CastleBranch as the criminal background check and drug screening provider. Wake Tech will not accept results from any company other than CastleBranch.
Students are responsible for the cost of the criminal background check, drug test and medical documentation manager and all are non-refundable.
Criminal Background Check
- The criminal background check must be submitted at the time of registration.
- The criminal background check is good for 1 year and must be valid throughout your entire class.
All types of felony or misdemeanor convictions, those that are pending, and questionable histories will be reviewed by the clinical site and admittance into the clinical setting will be determined by the clinical facility.
The clinical facility decision is final.
The following criminal histories will likely disqualify a student from participating in the clinical component:
- Any pending charges
- Convictions/deferred adjudications involving crimes against persons (Physical or sexual abuse, neglect, assault, murder, etc.)
- Convictions related to moral turpitude (prostitution, public lewdness/exposure, etc.)
- Convictions/deferred adjudications related to the sale, possession, distribution, or transfer of narcotics or controlled substances
- Registered sex offenders
Any student with a flagged criminal background check that has been declined by the clinical location will be contacted by a Wake Tech staff member.
The drug screening must be ordered at the time of registration and the urine sample must be submitted a minimum of 30 days before your class goes to clinical. Please note the clinical dates for your class when you register. The drug screening is good for 1 year and must be valid throughout your entire class.
Any student with a positive drug test will be contacted by CastleBranch.

Emergency Cancellations and Closings
Wake Technical Community College emergency cancellations and closings are posted on the college web page and messages are on the main phone line 919-866-5000. Current students with a Wake Tech email are automatically registered to receive Wake Tech Warn email alerts from the college emergency alert system. Students can also sign up with Wake Tech Warn to receive phone text messages and voice mail in the event of an emergency or inclement weather situation.
- Nurse Aide classes scheduled in December, January, February and March will have mandatory inclement weather makeup dates built into their class schedules. In the event the college closes and an entire class is missed, mandatory makeup dates will be used in the same order they are listed on the class schedule. The attendance policy for mandatory makeup dates is the same as a regular class date. If closings result in partial hours of class being missed, these hours will be made up by adding hours to existing class dates to make up the time.
